It’s that time of the year again, when publications across the world gather their best work for their obligatory Top 10 lists.

Last year, we featured our 10 best photos of 2009 and then you voted about which was your favorite. This year, I’d like to bring you into the process a little bit earlier.

Below is a gallery of 50 of my favorite photos of the year. I may eventually select photos from outside of this selection, but it should help you get an idea of what images we’re considering. Take a moment to peruse the pictures and then e-mail me at to let me know what your favorite VOSD pictures were this year and why. The better the argument, the better chance they show up in the final list.
